Since 1997, you’ve been coming to to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Dubliners, Portrait.., and Chamber Music

I liked Dubliners, Portrait... was just okay to me. and Chamber Music I apprecitate, tho' you wouldn't think so 'cause they don't even publish it anymore. I know they're just simple rhymes but when the heavy stuff doesn't do it, I turn to this.


Lean out of the window,


I heard you singing

A merry air.


My book is closed,

I read no more,

Watching the fire dance

On the floor.


I hame left my book:

 I have left my room:

for i heard you singing

Through the gloom,


Singing and singing

A merry air.

Lean out of the window,


Where ever you go, there you are---BuckarooBanzai
